    • How to facilitate a lightweight project retrospective
      Large group retrospectives are long, large, unwieldy facilitations. So much so that they’re typically done only at the end of a project. Holding a 1-2 day retro every few weeks for a large project is neither practical nor responsible, but continually improving the project is also important.  So, how do you hold light-weight retrospectives for large […]
    • Constellation retrospective
      This is a strong retrospective for bringing issues up to the surface. Instead of just one person expressing an issue as a positive or a negative, the whole team feedbacks about the importance of the issue. The team then decides which issues to tackle. The retrospective also exposes issues where there is not common view, […]

    • Group Vs team
      I have seen many “Agile teams” working quietly without talking to their teammates. Every day they are at work sharp 9 AM, pick up a user story from the backlog, finish it and go.  Their interaction with other team members is limited. But each one is really happy as the are achieving something. This is […]
    • How to build resilient Scrum teams ?

How to build resiliency in kids? 1. Providing unconditional love and acceptance […]

    • Targetprocess v.3.11.3: User Stories will now follow their parent Feature
      User stories will now follow their parent Feature Previously, if you moved a Feature to another Project, its User Stories did not follow the Feature to the new Project. This was fairly counter-intuitive. Starting with this release, if you

    • On the Essence of Business Analysis
      I recently had the opportunity to talk shop with Dave Saboe, who runs the Mastering Business Analysis website and accompanying podcast. The topic of our conversation was the "essence" or underlying "why" of business analysis, and how focusing on that "essence" or "why" can benefit the individual analyst, and the organization as a whole.

    • Product Manager is not a “CEO” of their products
      From the time product management has been around, there is a notion that to be effective, product managers should behave like CEOs for their product. A belief that the successful product managers have the power to make decisions for their product like CEOs do for a company. Others can provide all the input they want, but the final decision […]
    • Fear of Missing Touch – How to lose your way with your target market
      You all have likely heard the term FOMO – “Fear of Missing Out” – the fear that makes us buy products/services because everyone else is doing it and for the fear of missing out on something that others are getting out of it. A fear that has been proven to move products – people wanting stuff […]

    • “Can we come visit you?”
      One of the most powerful tools for understanding your customers is to talk to them where they live, act, work: the on-site visit. Unfortunately, site visits can feel so daunting that many companies don’t even try.  How do you coordinate dates and schedules? What do you have to do to set up? Why would anyone […]
